Croatia: Citizen journalists to play a big role in cross-platform "New Medium" project
Europapress Holding has plans to launch "the New Medium," a revolutionary news project that will integrate a daily newspaper, a web portal, television shows, and mobile communications. The New Medium will rely heavily on submissions from readers for content, particularly in the "Wiki tabloid" section. "Our project will be completely different from the rest of the press because we will not be as interested in the event itself - instead, the event will merely be the beginning of the story that our readers will create," explained Petar Pavic, who heads the project.
Professional journalists will select and edit the user-generated submissions. Rather than using traditional newspaper divisions to section the content, the New Medium will display and print the most interesting headlines and topics.http://www.editorsweblog.org/news/2007/07/croatia_citizen_journalists_to_play_a_bi.php
